obama ad is basically trying to frighten democrats into making sure they vote. reminding them of the disputed 2000 election. >> 537. the number of votes that changed the course of american history. >> florida is too close to call. >> the difference between what was and what could have been. >> reporter: a new poll shows that 59% of obama voters and 58% of romney voters are very enthusiastic. but the abc news/"washington post" poll indicates obama's enthusiasm numbers were higher four years ago at 68%. while romney's numbers are considerably better than john mccain's, which were at 38% four years ago. the cheering was deafening at this large obama rally on cleveland's lakefront but many obama supporters say it feels different than four years ago. >> it's seriously just a different kind of excitement. it's more sort of tempered in like reality that this is a campaign, not a crusade. >> thank you. >> reporter: on the gop side, anti-obama sentiment remains a key component of pushing supporters to vote. much the same as four years ago. >> i think it's more important to get obama ou
of pushing supporters to vote. much the same as four years ago. >> i think it's more important to get obama out. i do. i absolutely think it's more important to get obama out. >> reporter: clearly mitt romney and barack obama have some complicated relationships with their supporters. but no doubt neither candidate will care as long as the supporters make it to the polls. gary tuchman, cnn, cleveland. >> let's delve into the raw politics with gop strategist mary matalin and democratic strategist, james carville. good evening to you both. james, cornell belcher, the obama 2012 pollster, was on the program last night and he was saying that in internal polls, they're not seeing this romney momentum that the media has talked about so much since the first debate. they think momentum that obama is doing pretty well. do you buy that, that there's not the narrative of romney momentum is not accurate? >> i think romney did do better, objectively he improved his position after the first debate. i don't think he improved it any in the last ten days or so, but he improved his position then. i don't see
wednesday. >> who did you vote for? >> obama. >> and whose name popped up as the one that was checked? >> mitt romney. >> she's certain she did not make a mistake. she saw what happened when she double checked the ballot. >> i went back and my xs were under mitt romney. >> she's a life long democrat. >> i was like upset. like, what's going on here? >> she says she did point it out to an election worker who was helpful. >> we haven't had one report of any voting irregularities. >> but there have been other complaints around the country including one in north carolina where a voter says she wanted to vote for romney but it kept defaulting to obama. back in maryland alexander says always double check your ballot and remember to read the sample ballot ahead of time, especially this year. >> we do have 14 questions on the ballot, which is -- could potentially extend the average vote time. >> the woman we spoke to says she doesn't care who you vote for, she just wants the election to be fair for everyone. snie would tell them to check to make sure that they're voting for the right person wh
don't understand how a college kid can vote for barack obama. >> reporter: i think it's safe to say president obama will disagree with those comments. it's a little windy right now, courtesy of tropical storm sandy, but no hit impacting us here in florida. mitt romney with three events in the state today. >> all righty. >> thank you very much, paul. >>> new this morning, the leader of al qaeda is calling on muslims worldwide to kidnap westerners. the new video of ayman zawahiri was posted on a website more than two hours long. >> the threat is apparently retaliation for the imprisonment of a man convicted of plotting the 1993 world trade center bombing. we'll have more later this morning. >>> we've got a lot more ahead, though, for you. stick around. >>> here's what's coming up. >>> looks like it's going to be a pretty bad storm. >> sandy is barreling north. it could leave millions of people without power, and the damage to the campaigns could be catastrophic. >>> of the 50 states electing the president, these are the states that could swing either way. all morning we're putting the
of citizens can participate in the process and every person can exercise the right to vote. the obama campaign thanks the republican governor when he did that and then with a boost from early voting, democrat barack obama won the state of florida and the presidency. oops. last year florida's new republican governor rick scott decided he was not going to make that mistake again. rather than expanding voting, the new one decided he would cut the days for early voting almost in half in order to make voting harder. look. at least that's how it works. long, long, long lines for early voting in polls places across florida except this year it's long lines with no relief in sight. we have been getting pictures ever since early voting started in the state. this is how democracy works in florida this year. look at this. get in line. wait and wait. wait an hour. wait four hours. wait five hours. yesterday florida democrats and the nonpartisan group the league of women voters asked the governor to do something about the long lines. they asked him to add a day of voting to open the polls on the last sunday
the vote in particular. that's why you're seeing david axelrod making a bet that if president obama does not win michigan and minnesota and pennsylvania, he will shave off his mustache. he's betting his face. that's how confident he is. because this is the time in the campaign when you're supposed to project confidence. on the republican side, it's been a little more complicated. after a bad week of polling for mitt romney, top staffers held a conference call with reporters that enumerated their reasons why they see mitt romney as a shoe in despite the polling. they suggested their secret sauce that's more important than the polling is that mr. romney is winning independents. so there. romney has this thing in the bag. carl rove, for the republicans this year, he took to "the wall street journal" this week to patiently explain to the people who don't understand that these numbers that look so bad for mr. romney do not matter or they are wrong. or they are wrong and they don't matter. because he says democrats are not winning early voting by enough. and he says the polls make assumptions
the presidential election. to that point, the obama campaign put out this ad. >> 537, the number of votes that changed the course of american history. >> florida is too close to call. >> the difference between what was and what could have been. so this year, if you're thinking that your vote doesn't count, that it won't matter, well, back then there were probably at least 537 people who felt the same way. >> every vote counts, that's a message that's especially critical in battleground states like ohio. voting controversies have dominated much of the discussion. jon husted is ohio's secretary of state. sir, good to have you with us. first question -- >> great to be with you. >> -- the courts have reinstated voting on sunday before election day. is it over now? is it settled or is there still an appeal to be heard? >> actually, that's not what the court said. the court said we could have it, or we could shut it down. what i chose to do is implement uniform hours across the state for the saturday, sunday and monday before the election. but that issue is settled. and we're moving on to the n
. romney is tied 47% with obama about the vote. this is about our pocketbooks and bank accounts and jobs and women has been effected with the jobless rate under president obama and that's what it's about. it's not working. >> i don't think it's funniy at all. it's not funny because we are not going to fall for it in the end. women were told that the reason why republicans wanted to get into congress is because they wanted to do something about the debt. they got in there and immediately attacked the plan on parenthood. they passed 26 laws in hundreds of states. they have here a woman who is attacked, called a slut for wanting access to contraception and a candidate that just said, i wouldn't phrased it that way. exactly how would he have phrased it? >> that's a false narrative. >> i don't want to get off the topic of women -- okay. i will give you that time. i want to get to the impact on swing voters so-called by "the new york times" waitress moms and what is this going to do to the pitch battle in ohio, in florida, in virginia for women voters in the united states. >> we see the so-cal
not to vote for barack obama again, who voted for him in 2008 and aren't happy with the way things are going. once somebody else to vote for and now that mitt romney is both acceptable because of his debate performances, and it looks like he might actually win, it's easier to jump ship to him. that's the kind of group of people you'll have to watch in some of these tightly fought states. chris: david, your thoughts on this cy war going on in both directions clearly. >> i think obama may be making a mistake in this posture of sitting on a lead. there's a way in which the president has been too defensive, too reticent in his demeanor through the campaign. and if you pull the camera back and look at the last couple of months, there's no question whatever the momentum factor is in these last few days, no question that over that broader period, there has been momentum toward romney. and people he was not really close challenger, he is now. and i think that factor is there. and you can just see it. you can see it in his body language. chris: i can see what obama is trying to do. he's trying to rem
of people that they think might vote for president obama. i mean, one of the other things that you know that they drk reverend al, they took out sunday voting, the sunday before the news day of election day. >> right. >> there's a tradition in the african-american community to go out after church and vote but we did that last sunday. >> now, the other thing that has compounded it is that these ballots in miami-dade are ten page ballots. you're dealing with extensive ballots that take time for people to go through. so people around the country need to know it's not just walking in and choosing a name. these are ten-page ballots with people lined up outside waiting for their opportunities. >> you couldn't be more right. we put 11 amendments on this ballot. it makes it ridiculously long. people get in and start to vote and stay there for a long time because they are trying to read and decipher everything on that ballot and you have to wonder if the intent was to do just that, slow people down. but that's where we are right now. i have faith. i have faith that the people are going to do the

obama took his hunt for votes to the live free or die states where he told a group of local teamsters new hampshire's four electoral votes could make all the difference. >> it's very clear that the other side doesn't believe. >> reporter: governor romney spent the day in all-important florida, in pensacola, home to a major nave air station, romney brought up a sore spot from the final debate. >> i made the point our navy is now smaller than any time, well, in almost 100 years. and the president's response was, well, you know, we don't use bayonets and horses anymore. and in fact we do use bayonets. >> reporter: both candidates are accusing each other of failed leadership. president obama said romney hiked fees on everything as governor of massachusetts. >> he raised fees to get a birth certificate, which would have been expensive for me. >> reporter: he said mr. obama broke promises to cut the deficit and save medicare. >> he is shrinking from the magnitude of the times. >> you got these guys. >> reporter: and both sides are wary of the impact on polling locations. if prolonged power

're going to find out. can obama win re-election with a historically small share of the white vote which basically means will the nonwhite vote share of the electorate rise to new levels that will allow him to survive, like latino support and black support. obama people say hey turn out among blacks and la zwroins will be as high as in 2008 and republicans saying no it won't. do you have a sense who is right in that dispute? >> increasingly what you've seen a department coalition over the years that has been built on african-americans, hispanic, women. we see the huge gap, gender gap between barack obama and mitt romney. and some white men and increationly you see republican party that's the majority, large majority of white men and a gap on the other side. so that is a test, i think we'll see. one of the questions about all the polls we've seen are the models they are using correct. is it going to be 75% white electorate? is it 77%? 72%? is the hispanic share of the electorate going to be 7%, 10%, 12%? so i think we'll get those answers to those questions. an interest ago side to that s

surveyed said they had voted. a break for romney by 50-43. obama won the early vote last time around, according to puke, by 19 points or was winning at this point by 19 points and now he's losing it by seven. that is more than enough to flip the election. lou: two things, if we can go back to your board, immediately apparent command one is that there is a 5-4 margin if i read correctly, democrats over republicans in the early vote in 2008 that ratio was over two times -- two times. >> almost two to one. and we are talking here about less than a 5-4 margin. we are talking about 98,000 difference on the base, and this number will continue to grow. there will be probably, the republicans are probably going to narrow that gap between the two to somewhere around 85 or 90,000 votes. and i repeat, on election day is a starkly that republicans have carried the vote, even when president obama was winning the state in 2008, he was losing the election they vote. and these republican numbers are a sign of the ground game in ohio that is strong. the young guy who is running it, scott jennings, he

of the obama campaign strategy, urging people to get out and vote early. so we are here in new hampshire, which is another key battle ground state. president obama will be speaking here a little bit later on this afternoon. he will be joined by music icon james taylor. this is the president's sixth visit to new hampshire. doesn't have as many electoral votes as colorado. it only has four electoral votes. but those are four important electoral votes because this race is so razor tight, alex. president obama won this state in 2008 and hasn't seen some of the same effects of the economic downturn as other states in fact the unemployment rate here is at 5.7%. it's far below the national average. but of course mitt romney has a home in this state. he was governor of neighboring massachusetts. so he carries a lot of weight here in this state as well. i expect from president obama takes the podium later on this afternoon you will hear him continue his message to middle class voters trying to make the case that he is the candidate to best preserve the interests of middle class voters and also to sort o
for obama is the status quo with stagnation. a vote for mitt romney is bold change and prosperity. the president made all kinds of promises to be a bipartisan leader and wasn't able to do that with obamacare with not a single republican vote and he promised to restore the economy, bring down the debt, cut taxes, balance the budget, et cetera, and that hasn't happened. he says if the country is behind him and elects him and if democrats are willing to work with him he can militia it and a slap back from the senate saying if mitter harry reid romney has a fantasy of casting severely conservative agenda he will not get help from senate democrats which echoes what the republicans said when president obama took office and now before mitt romney wins, assuming he would, the democrats are saying they will not help. >>shepard: we used to watch the last three or four days of campaign where the candidates spend their money but they have so much money they can spend all they want and now we watch where they go. what do you make of the fact that mitt romney is going back to pennsylvania? >>ca
on election day and cast ballots. so the question is how many of these people are actually voting for obama? how many are voting for romney? obviously we don't know. indications are from our poll is that romney is winning the key demographic or the key swing voters or the key swing state, and that's the independent voters. he is marginally winning them. he is also doing well with north florida democrats, certain crossover democrats, rural democrats. he pulls about 16% of them on our poll, where as obama only pulls about 5% republican support. so that crossover appeal so to speak of romney's in florida and the independent edge that he appears to have is making a difference. but good campaigns can change polls. they're not changed by polls. and the question is who turns out their voters and who does it best. we're going to find out today. today is the last day of early voting. and then on tuesday that's when the ball game is. >> mark murray, let me bring you in. both men have these op-eds in "the wall street journal." we have the headlines. real progress, but we're not done. that's from the p
and government more of your life is working for us. then you will want to vote for barak obama and higher taxes gives government money that could have funded your job, romney is more likely to be your choice. this much i do know. i sense something very strong moving over this country. on august 1st people waited for line to buy a chicken sandwich. i believe those people are going to be willing to wait in line for hours to cast a vote so america will feel their votes. this is not just an election about our pay checks. this is it an election of our principlings. i believe that everyone's life has value and i don't accept the notion someone is dedisposable or expendible. i believe this election ought to be l about america's place in the world. i am not satisfied we are begin straight and honest answers of the murder of our ambassador and thry other american necessary benghazi. the lack of trance parency and the everchanging store stores from the administration are troubling. it is one thing for a politician to embellish or stretch the truth but for the government to knowingly and willingly deceive
in the battle ground state. find the people that voted for obama in 08 because hope and change sounded good and now know it didn't happen and it was not real. hope and change is now anger and frustration and divide and conquer. we'll not fall for that are we. we have 10 day to go here and as you look at closing arguments, we are talking about what it take to get people back to work and the kind of leadership that mitt romney has provided throughout his life and running at problems to solve problems. there have been hundreds of millions of negative advertising. >>> and there you have paul ryan out there in ohio, that key battle ground state. and presidential race is now a dead heat. clear politicings average showed mitt romney pulled ahead 48-47. and fox news battle ground shows the race is close in ohio. and romney has pulled within three points of the president. that has both candidates making a major push for the women and undied -- undecided voters. joining us now. the black helicopterers. dick morris, thank you for joining us today. >> good to be here uma. i noticed something interestin
after four states in swing states claiming the votes are going to obama and should be going to romney. >> because they know they are losing. >> jon: let's get back to the coverage. if president obama loses what is the media theme going to be? >> i think a lot of people, andrew sullivan, if you only voted, daily beast. if you only voted obama once you have to vote for him twice. i think some version of obviously the american people and alan is ready with that script. they bubbled up and he lost. think that is what he'll say. >> jon: if romney loses? >> it's going to be further indication that the republican party is dying, it's been taken over by tea party extremists. that the party is out of touch and demographically ill-suited. >> the problem with that. >> the rob with that, last year the religious right had taken over had taken over the republican party. now, it's the tea party but before that was the religious right. that has imploded because you don't see governor romney using abortion or gay marriage decisively. >> they became moderate, the religious right haven't taken over gove
for and i think the number was something like 43% said they would vote for obama and 18% said they would vote for romney. clearly the nonvoters are easily 2-1, 3-1 in favor of obama. so the real challenge, i think -- and this is what i thought because i sent it out to my twitter followers and facebook and all of this and i have gotten about 5 million people on these various social media things. i said to all of them today, can you do me a favor. in the next five or six days identify one person you know who isn't planning to vote and convince them to vote. get them to vote. if we all took that as our mission the next six days i'm going to get one non-voter to vote. i think that this could add easily another million votes for obama. it is the likely voters in the polls we don't talk about unlikely voters and i would look at this if i were a politician and say wow, there's 09 million untapped votes there. >> amazing statistic. take a break and we will be back after this.

, on election day is a starkly that republicans have carried the vote, even when president obama was winning the state in 2008, he was losing the election they vote. and these republican numbers are a sign of the ground game in ohio that is strong. the young guy who is running it, scott jennings, he used to work with me at the white house. he told me in early october they had busted through all of the metrics of that massive operation we had in 2004. they locked 175,000 doors last saturday. they have knocked on over $2 million, made over 6 million contacts and will have 3 million by election day and probably somewhere in the vicinity of eight to eight and a half million contacts which is huge. lou: i have asked you a number of times over the past months about the republican ground operation, ground game for the republicans up against -- teenine not being entirely stochastic about that. it is a strong ground operation that the obama campaign has put forward your. the strongest, some would argue, ever. are the republicans, in fact my going to be able -- we ee the intensity, the polls saying th
elections. host: pennsylvania -- 20 electoral votes. in 2008, barack obama won by 10%. unemployment in the state is nearing what we have nationwide, 8.2%. terry madonna, neighboring ohio is getting a lot of attention with its 18 electoral votes -- was so different between ohio and pennsylvania that makes the buckeye state more of a battleground in pennsylvania, at least the moment? guest: the essential difference is that ohio has a good many more moderate independent voters at this point which are likely to vote either republican or democrat. as i pointed out a moment ago, the reason the democrats of done well as they have captured the suburbs of our state in these last presidential elections in recent years. that has been the defining difference -- you have the big swath of in the middle, of ohio in columbus that is the battleground area. obviously the cleveland area in the northeastern part of the state is democratic. the cincinnati part in the southwest is more republican. ohio has a larger pool of the swing voters, if you will, and more evenly balanced between the democratic and
the issues. don't just vote, vote smart. >> obama: the election will take care of itself next week. right now our number one priority is to make sure we are saving lives. >> announcer: heard around the country and seen on current tv, this is the "bill press show." >> bill: president obama on the job yesterday at the white house, commander in chief for hurricane sandy. back to your calls about how this election -- how the storm impacts the election. first, here is a little item that caught my attention. even members of the armed services, subject to identity theft. story out of washington state. officials raided several locations in washington state. finding that hundreds of people including active duty military personnel had their identities stolen. you hear a story like that. you need some protection against identity theft. i recommend -- what i've got. lifelock ultimate. i recommend it. it includes keeping track of your bank accounts. but of course, lifelock can't protect you or your bank account if you're not a member
on the issue of women and making women believe that there is a war on them. and if you don't vote for obama, you are in bad shape. it's like a push poll. they don't want your opinion, they want to tell you and shape what your opinion should be. then they do a poll and say women only care about abortion. if you cared about yourself and your daughter you would vote for obama. >> bill: never use the word abortion. it's always reproductive right. >> health. >> bill: it's yowrs health. the way they position is that the republic party doesn't pim pa theisman with the ladies and mr. obama does. i have to say, that i disagree with you. i think it's working because if you look at the economy, that's a romney strength. that's a romney strength. >> romney is doing better with women in the last three weeks than he ever did before. >> he is still behind in single women. >> he is. according to this swing state poll, the number one issue amongst 12 of these states is 39% of the women said abortion. i'm not saying that it's not going to be effective. i'm saying that women do not only vote based on abortion

from the republican nominee, but i think in new mexico and michigan he is taking votes away from obama. if you could give me some insight into what you think will happen there. guest: that is a good question because we tend to oversimplified about independent and third-party candidates. we need to remember first of all some people turn out to vote for them that would not make a choice between the two major party candidates. maybe they would show up and vote for a member of congress or the local sheriff, i don't know. but it is not as though all of those votes are taken from a major party candidate. that is simply not true. having said that, it is true some votes are taken from major party candidates. if you only have a choice of a democrat or republican, some would make a choice. libertarians in general take a few more votes from republicans than democrats. maybe more than a few votes. it depends on the state and the race and the circumstances. gary johnson, i think, will take more votes from mitt romney than barack obama but i do not think it will make a difference in any state unless

is. what i want to do is make sure that everybody who agrees with us votes. >> key part of the obama campaign strategy is early voting which could be effected in coastal battlegrounds. today, the virginia state board of elections urged localities to keep moving forward with in-person absentee voting unless the storm makes it unsafe. >> i am not worried at this point about the impact on the election. worry about the impact on families and the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on the economy. >> it could delay friday's release of new jobs report just four days before the election. >> labor department official later said it's our intention that friday will be busy as usual. regarding the october employment report. notice wiggle room with the "intention." unclear if they will open in a few days or all week closed. unclear. but any delay in jobs report close to the election would cause an uproar. >> ed henry live at the white house. thank you. romney campaign is like much of the east. hunkering down politically tonight. riding out the storm. two political corres
, the reason he has voted for barack obama is because of the color of his skin, that they're both black men. >> right. look, there's no wriggle room whatsoever. it's extremely offensive and this is the kind of just patent disrespect the president's had to endure a lot, to think that somebody with colin powell's depth of experience, with his wisdom and with his intellect is going to support somebody just because of the color of their skin is ridiculous, it's offensive and is in many ways just despicable but the reality is, what i feel very strongly about, is i would much rather look at just 11 days left in this election, and as much as i think mitt romney should distance himself from him, he should be very clear -- >> what should he do, mitt romney? people are saying you got to get after this guy, got to close this down, because otherwise you could have the last two weeks of the election campaign dominated by a race card, last thing they all want. >> right. again, i think mitt romney should be stepping up on this issue and frankly, what i'm even more shocked on is you have a united states se

electoral votes. obama won by 10 percentage points. unemployment is mirroring what we have nationwide, 8.2%. neighboring ohio is getting an awful lot of attention with their 18 electoral votes. what is so different between ohio and pennsylvania that makes ohio more of a battleground than pennsylvania at the moment? guest: the essential differences ohio has a good many more moderate independent voters at this point which are likely to either vote republican or democrat. as i pointed out a moment ago, the recent democrats have done well is because they have captured the suburbs in our state in the recent presidential elections which has been the defining difference. in the middle of ohio and columbus, that is a battleground. there, obviously with cleveland, but in the northeastern part of the state being democratic and cincinnati and out west be more republican. ohio just has a larger pool of these swing voters, if you will, and are more evenly balanced between the democratic and republican regions of the state. pennsylvania has a huge portion of moderate independent-minded voters and they
johnson's it support for marijuana legalization could cost president obama votes. others say they tend to pull unaffiliated voters that could go republican, so he is one to watch to see what kind of vote totals he will get. the biggest third-party candidate in colorado history was ross perot who pulled in, i think, 23% of the vote. host: curtis hubbard, what will you be watching for on election night? guest: the suburban counties around denver. you will hear a lot of talk about arapaho and jefferson counties in terms of which ever candid it will win those counties. they will have a much easier path to running the state of colorado. i will be looking closely at the number of republican votes coming in from el paso county, douglas county, mesa county. another swing county is a clear emmer, northern colorado, fort collins, colorado state university -- another county is larrimer. we are going to see if they get the numbers the way they want to. they will pay considerable attention to the southwest corner of the state. durango, ft. lewis, so we will see how they are doing in that corner of
strategist and cathy republican strat yist and author of 52 reasons not to vote for obama. christie, starting with you, it is obvious that early voting favors democrats in a big way and today the governor cancelled early voting and don't be surprised if it happens again tomorrow. >> it is not helpful to our side. but the ramification. storm impact will not only be felt today or this week but through election day as well we don't know all of the chaos that will ensue. it will affect both people who can't get to the polls polling places and voters that don't have power. we don't know who is really going to be hurt by it. >> steve: no matter means no tv ads and for poem who vote both campaigns are trying to get their message out in the week or so. no one will so that? >> in theory that hurts president obama's opportunities but where he has an opportunity to look presidential and there is it a natural disaster. and difficult for romny to grab air time. newspaper and radios and they will get some levels of publicication but it is an tount for the president>> steve: we saw the president at fema yes
not yet voted, i want you to go vote. vote. vote. vote. vote. >> so did you get the message obama supporters some vote, vote, vote, early, early, early. it is a message directed specifically at the base. and to drive the point home about early voting, president obama went home to cast his vote this past thursday in chicago. this is the first time a sitting president has voted early. and the campaign also circulated a photo of first lady michelle obama showing off her prepared absentee ballot. now, they have it up on their website, too, in case you haven't had any campaign ads to remind you. i figured, hell, if they're voting early, i might as well join the party. so i voted earlier this week. while that message may have been pretty clear, the obama campaign has had a few mixed messages. their daily e-mails have ranged from the race is close giving voters a sense that they might lose at any point to them having a bit of swagger. we got this. now, mitt romney on the other hand has chosen to go full tilt with his swagger. i can't even believe i just said romney and swagger in the sam
concerned about the debt our children will be left with. i voted for president obama last time but we just can't afford four more years.ney and i approve this message. >> the impact of sandy is still being felt in our area. >> there is a handful of outages but it is frustrating for one family. this is like deja vu. >> a repeat of what these folks saw a couple of months ago when the strong storms came through. the men in power has been here all day hoping to restore tonight. they're telling us that 300 customers were left without power. >> this is the master bedroom. >> he took us inside his alexandria home to show us what was left of his bedroom. had he stayed, he probably would have been crushed by the tree that crashed into his bedroom. >> we're devastated. i had no clue it would be the severe. >> we talk to him today as he secures his home. this is costing him thousands of dollars. >> is doing what he is supposed to when it comes to the insurance process. >> you have to keep their receipts because it will be reimbursed. >> in addition to keeping receipts, take pictures of the dama
what, obama's margn was 262,000 in no way, mot of it fueled by a huge turnout in early voting, and that he lost th election day voting to maake romney. so this is not a good sign commend i have been watching this trend for a week. the margins are getting bigger. on tuesday it was 150 some odd thousand. now it is larger than what obama won the state by a in 2008. this is a bad sign for president obama, and we see it reflected in the polls as well. if you take a look, allup says 15 percent of the people had voted early. they were breaking for romney by 52-46. this week to reports 19 percent of those surveyed said they had voted. a break for romney by 50-43. obama won the early vote last time around, according to puke, by 19 points or was winning at this point by 19 pois and now he's losing it by sven. that is more than enough to flip the election. lou: two things, if we can g back to your board, immediately apparent command one is that there is a 5-4 margin if i read correctly, democrats over republicans in the early vote in 2008 that ratio was over two times -- two times. >> a
. >> blacks can gain success and prosperity by voting out obama and the democrats and voting in the republican. >> cenk: i just don't think that's going to work. then later should we start thinking about floodgates? is climate change so serious we should design around it. >> a harbor pivoting up when needed to block the one time it's okay for you to miss my show is if that's the only time you can get to a polling place. make sure that voting is your highest priority on election day. besides, you can always dvr my show. you really cant' dvr the future of the country. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. so vote and vote smart. osaka,{^l"^^}-for-tore. >> cenk: a new super pac has convinced that they have a new way to get african-americans to vote for republicans. >> i have a major revelation for black americans. it is a big lie that democrats are for black americans and republicans are against black americans. abraham lincoln who freed the slaves was a republican. republicans founded the naacp. republicans passed the civil rights
clinton or barack obama. they may have voted for then candidate obama in the final election, and you need to convince them to vote for paul ryan and me. >> there's a real good feeling throughout this thing. these old buckeyes kind of see it clear. no, i really mean it. they can cut through a lot of this stuff. >> let's bring in john feary and david goodfriend. good to see you, gentlemen. good morning. david, let me ask you about mitt romney as appeal to hillary clinton veeters. could he pick off moderate democrats? >> no. in order to be a hillary clinton voter you see the world a lot differently than mitt romney says he does. i think the divisiveness the romney campaign has shown economically and frankly when it comes to women's issues, it's going to drive people back into the obama camp. it's an interesting thing, because he may very well have had a shot at some of the moderate democratic voters in ohio, but i think his campaign has stumbled in that it never shown itself to be an open, big tent for moderates. it's still very conservative, severely conservative as mitt romney might say, a
. there's--we've surpassed the 2008 number for early voting and obama is taking that at about 60%-30%. that's coming online. the weather has been bad. it's been cold and rainy. it's supposed to be nice starting friday, saturday, sunday, in which that will be solid for us to be able to get out the early vote the weekend before the election. but it's going to be close cenk. i mean, this is going to come down to the ryan. we're going to need people who will go out continue to volunteer and make sure that our voters get to the ballot box and that's how we're going to win. it will be a ground game. it will be grinding it out and it will be close right down to the wire. >> cenk: congressman ryan, i want to ask you about that ground game in a second. stay with us. michael, let me quickly ask about early voting that congressman ryan mentioned there. how much difference does it make that president obama has the lead. >> it's a significant lead. they measure it by party not valley vote because they're not in there counting the ballots. it's also a more popular thing to be doing. more democ
. >> the hurricane damage won't affect the electoral vote but it will take some electorals from barack obama. >> it could drive up the popular vote. >> i would say a popular vote split remains small. i must say on the point that amy raised about bipartisan in the promise of bringing the two sides together, that has got to be the one promise that has so thoroughly been proven empty for two presidencies in a row. remember george w. bush was a uniter not a divider. we saw what happened there. and barack obama comes in with the same kind of promise and the political sciences say george bush was the most polarized presidency. it's a condition of life and what obama's hoping is that republicans if he's re-elected sort of collapse a little bit in exhaustion and work with him in a short period of time. >> and regardless if it's a popular electoral split, it's going to be close. almost 50% of the country will feel disenchanted with whoever is elected. and the fault lines will be quite amazing. >> let's talk about where we were last week. it felt like there was momentum in mitt romney's direction. whe
. >> makes it very narrow for mitt romney. if president obama wins ohio he's at 261 electoral votes based on our battleground map. if mitt romney gets virginia and florida he's stuck to 248. new hampshire where he owns a home but the president probably a finger on the scale now we're at 261-261 and we've been talking all along about the midwest and importance of ohio, wisconsin and iowa and the necessity for mitt romney to win two of those three. look at that right there. you got those 16 electoral votes between those two and if somehow mitt romney or barack obama were to pick up wisconsin, boom you've got president obama at 271 and even if mitt romney were to get iowa he's only at 267, craig the importance of the industrial midwest. >> all right. you mentioned florida. let's dig a little bit deep near to florida. based on that poll neck and neck race. if president obama, if he does not win florida what does that mean for his path to victory? >> of course the president still can win even if mitt romney were to win florida and virginia and again it all comes down to ohio. because like we j
is a lot for obama -- is a lock for obama. nobody thinks it's going to vote for mitt romney and nowhere in this conversation he said the president has been outstanding. i talked to him three times. he is gushing over his admiration and i'm sure mitt romney would do the same thing. mitt romney is nowhere near mentioned in this whole thing. and so it allows the president to stand next to a republican and evoke bipartisanship and saying that the president rises to the occasion and chris christie looks like a cheerleader. >> cover that state house in trenton years ago. i can tell you if you a republican you better get along with democrats because there are plenty of them. fox 5 political analyst, we thank you. >>> the president gets back into it full swing tomorrow and heads back on the campaign trails for the remainder of the campaign. >> two and a half hours where the polls close at early voting. here is bowie public library. how is it going? >> people are motivated to vote. the line has been long outside this building since the library opened its doors at 8:00 this morning. you see over
. >> but isn't it better than nothing? >> look, if i lived in a swing state i would vote for obama no doubt about it. romney scares me. he wants to give wall street a bank check. he is a greater evil. >> eliot: you were clear you said he's the lesser of two evils. >> obama. >> eliot: yes. you did not describe him in the affirmative vote. >> you know this better than i do. when you put lawrence sumners in and timothy geithner, you are clear about it. i would have voted for you. that's why i came on this show. seriously, you had the right mentionmessage. i'm not trying to flatter you. and i thought obama in that speech he gave when running against hillary he nailed it. wall street gave him all that money. now wall street has betrayed him they think the best defense and offense and they're going to play him now. >> eliot: i thought wall street was smart enough to understand that he used rhetoric that was edgy but did nothing that would hurt them. but they seem to be soaked in rhetoric that even pinks them, and now we're not with you. >> they're shameful. >> eliot: before we spend too much time
